    Fact Book

    The Northland Community & Technical College Fact Book provides general statistical and descriptive information about the college which may be useful to those engaged in planning, assessment, preparing reports, writing grant proposals or other endeavors within the college. The Fact Book is a reference tool that provides a picture of Northland for fiscal year 2016 by using fall 2015 data, along with historical trend data. While not all available data has been gathered, the data accurately represents the major areas of the college. Data may differ from other college and state reports. Such variances result from source of information used, the date on which the report was generated or the reporting period included in the data. Trends should be tracked using identical data sources over time. Data reflects student enrollment by either full-year equivalent (FYE), full-time equivalent (FTE), or headcount:

    Student Full-Year Equivalent A full-time enrollment equivalent for a year – total credits taken by all students over the academic year divided by 30 (the number of credits considered to be a full-time course load over the duration of the year).

    Student Full-Time Equivalent Student full-time equivalent for a semester – total credits taken during the semester for all students divided by 15.

    Headcount For this purpose, the headcount is the actual number of students enrolled at the 30th day of Fall Semester.
